Alpha Black & Gold, VCU Claims 3-2 Victory Over Towson

Alpha Black & Gold, VCU Claims 3-2 Victory Over Towson

A pretty yet chilly Cary Street Field on a Friday afternoon in RVA as VCU Field Hockey hosted Towson in a Black & Gold showdown.

The Rams took the upper hand with the opening goal by Lauren Kaup. Kaup was able to get her shot by Towson’s Emille Woodall for her second goal of the season and putting VCU up 1-0. Towson answered back just before the conclusion of the 1st half as Korena Shaw evened things up at 1-1.

Emily McNamara put on a good performance in the 2nd half for the Rams. Her efforts were rewarded with two goals off of VCU penalty corners in the 42nd and 56th minute. McNamara leads VCI with a team-high 10 goals this season.

Towson was able to stop bleeding momentarily with a goal from Sabrina Davis in the 62nd minute however it was not enough for the Tigers. This Black & Gold battle went in favor of VCU in a 3-2 win at Cary Street Field.

Next up for VCU is a road trip to Pennsylvania on Sunday, October 16th with the Rams facing St. Francis (PA) in an A-10 matchup. That match is scheduled for a 1 PM start.
